Main Ingredients

  • 9-10 pound shank portion ham
  • whole cloves
  • 1-2 cups water
  • 1 cup pumpkin puree
  • 3/4 cup pure maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 1 ½ teaspoons pumpkin pie spice

Cooking Instructions

Step 1

Preheat oven to 325°. Score the back side of the ham in a diamond pattern, cutting about 1/4-inch deep. Add whole cloves at each corner of the diamonds.

Step 2

Whisk to combine pumpkin puree, maple syrup, apple cider and pumpkin spice. Set aside.

Step 3

Place ham in roasting pan with 1/4-inch of water and tent with foil. Let heat for 2 ½ hours. Increase heat to 425°. Remove foil and brush glaze all over ham. If water has evaporated, add more. Repeat glazing every 10 minutes for 30-40 minutes.

Step 4

Remove from oven. Let rest 15 minutes, then carve and serve.

Step 5 :: Helpful Hints

Most hams are precooked, so when reheating, the temperature you are looking for is 135°.

Step 6

Substitute apple juice for the water for an even more flavorful ham.
